Us Rating **1/2

A new teen drama! Spoiled Sutton (Alexandra Chando) is reeling from big news: She's adopted and has an identical twin (who happens to live nearby), humble foster kid Emma (Chando, again). Things get even more far-fetched from there: Sutton asks sis to pose as herself while she finds their birth mom. Then Sutton vanishes! Chando nails her demanding dual role. Alas, the overwrought plot reeks of a bad soap. (ABC Family, 9 P.M.)
